About the Damajagua River Tour (27 Charcos of Damajagua)!!

12 Waterfalls (Damajagua River Tour):

Come and enjoy the 27 Pools of the Damajagua River Tour! Perched in the rolling hills of the Northern mountain range of the Dominican Republic, this is a natural treasure that you will not find on any other part of this world. Indeed, Mother Nature has produced 27 beautiful pools, carved by the limestone. Be ready to have fun!!!

Although the 27 waterfalls have existed for millennia they were only recently discovered by the outside world. Therefore, the first tourists began arriving at the Falls in 1994, and little by little, word got out about this amazing natural treasure and spawned a guiding industry for the local young men. Nevertheless, ten years later, nearly 50,000 tourists every year come to Rio Damajagua to enjoy what Dominicans have known about for centuries.

Thus, the number of tourists coming to 27 Charcos has grown dramatically. In 1998, the local guides officially formalized their association in to the AGRD, the Association of Guides of Rio Damajagua. Our team has extensive experience as water guides and strives to ensure that your satisfaction is our number one priority. Our goal is to make the time you spend with us the highlight of your vacation.

At first, the tour begins at the beautiful, new, visitor center. Come and enjoy traditional Dominican food and beverages in the open-air restaurant with breath-taking mountain views. Next, make your way to the first waterfall on our interpretive nature trail on which you will encounter hundreds of species of tropical plants and birds.

 

The Waterfalls:

  1. The First Waterfall (“The Virgin”): Legend says that the Taino Indians who used to inhabit the area built a statue of the Virgin Saint of the Dominican Republic, Altagracia.
  2. The Perfect Waterslide (“La Tinajita”): “La Tinajita” At over 20 feet deep, this waterfall is one of the most exciting!!
  3. The Corkscrew: A fun climb and an even better slide on the way back down.
  4. T.O.Y.S.: This innocent looking waterfall has the tendency to make some tourists a little red in the face. You might want to tie up that swimsuit tight…
  5. The Cave: The waterfall that falls through the domed roof gives a fantastic massage.
  6. The Crystal: “The 8th” Tourists that climb up to this waterfall can be almost assured that they will not see any other tourists for the rest of the day.
  7. Hot and Cold: The water in this fall has separated into two different levels, but opposite from what you might expect: hot on the bottom and cold on top.
  8. Flor’s Fall: Flor Trejo was an old farmer who used to have a small plantation on one of the mountainsides near Rio Damajagua.
  9. The Jaiba: This pool, with its crystalline water, is named for the fresh water crabs that can be found living in a crack in the rock wall.
  10. The Hammock: About 16 years ago, a large vine hung from the tree canopy above the river that looked like a hammock.
  11. The Taino: The view form the base of this fall is one of the most beautiful there is. Enjoy!
  12. The Natural Pool: The most beautiful of all the waterfalls, the Natural Pool has characteristics that resemble a real pool.
